FIVE UK firefighters who saved a man’s life after he was stabbed are to receive an award.
The men, from Maesteg fire station, will be honoured in a ceremony tomorrow.
Their quick thinking saved the life of 48-year-old John Baker, of Carmen Street, Caerau, Maesteg.
Sub Officer Martyn Harris, Leading Firefighter Dave Lake, Firefighter Andrew Daye, Firefighter Dave Smith and Firefighter John Boulton will be presented with a letter of commendation.
The men were called to a pub where they found Mr Baker in grave danger. They wrapped him in their uniforms to stop the heavy bleeding and drove him to hospital in the back of a fire engine.
